What to Expect
The claim process for car accidents
This may be your first car accident or your first serious injury—and the process can be overwhelming. You may not know how much money you need, how serious your injury truly is, or what your future will be like.
For the insurance company, however, this is just another day. They have experienced negotiators who are paid to talk down accident victims. They put all of their resources & experience into paying you the smallest amount possible—even if it won’t cover your needs.
Having a lawyer on your side gives you a powerful friend. Our Atlanta car accident lawyers deal with insurance companies every day. We know how to use the law to beat them. Insurance companies know that once we’re on your side, their cheap tricks will no longer work. Call us. We can help.
Here’s how we help at each stage of the car accident claim process:
- Your FREE consultation.
You don’t have to commit to hiring a lawyer to talk with one. Ask us questions, find out if you have a case, and decide for yourself if we can help you.
- Medical documentation.
If you’re injured, do not wait to get medical care. We can help you see specialists who understand your injuries even if you cannot pay. Then we use these medical records to prove your injuries to the insurer.
- Complete investigation.
Insurance companies launch an investigation to try to argue down your claim. We turn the tables by performing our own thorough investigation—including what happened, how serious your injuries are, and what the true long-term costs will be.
- Calculating the damages.
“Damages” is a legal term for all of the costs resulting from the accident. We understand the hidden costs of an injury that most insurers don’t want to pay for—and we demand the true amount you need.
Insurers do not want to see a lawyer on the other side of the table, because they know it means they cannot fast talk you out of a large settlement. We confront the insurance company with hard evidence and fight for your needs.
Your settlement offer should be the highest number possible and should cover medical care, pain and suffering, lost wages, rehabilitation, the cost of your vehicle and more. Many car accident claims are settled successfully without ever going to court.
What Can We Do For You?
You can recover money for a lot more than just medical treatment & car repairs. Car accident victims in Atlanta have the right to recover for many types of damages:

- Living with long term pain and emotional trauma

Who We Help
We handle all types of vehicle accidents
Most car crashes involve some kind of careless or negligent driving. A negligent driver may or may not be breaking the law—what matters is that they were not paying attention or drove in a careless way. Negligence includes speeding, aggressive driving, acts of road rage, no turn signal, not following traffic laws, and sudden lane changes.
Distracted driving is a special kind of negligent driving. It has become common in the age of cell phones, and is a leading cause of car wrecks in Atlanta. Texting or looking at a phone is not the only form of distracted driving—a driver can be distracted by eating, GPS, or hands-free phone conversations.
DUI Drivers DUI means driving under the influence of alcohol OR drugs, or even over-the-counter medications. It is a leading cause of fatalities on Atlanta’s roads and highways, and is considered an egregious form of negligent driving—in addition to being illegal. DUI drivers are usually found to be at fault for the accidents they’re involved in.

Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions:
How does fault work in an Atlanta car accident?
Atlanta is a “fault state.” That means that whichever driver caused the accident is the one whose insurance has to pay for all the costs. In some cases one driver is completely at fault, while in others, the insurance companies attempt to “split” the fault between both drivers.
A driver can be at fault for several reasons:
- They broke a traffic law which led to the accident
- They were under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and this contributed to the accident
- They were driving in a careless or unsafe way, even if they did not explicitly break the law
All of these are examples of negligence. Negligence is a legal term that just means being careless. A negligent driver is not necessarily a bad person and probably didn’t want to cause any harm. But their inattentive driving still puts them at fault for the accident.
Occasionally, fault lies with a third party who wasn’t at the accident—such as a tire dealer or car manufacturer, if a faulty car part caused the accident.
Be aware that drivers who are at fault will often try to blame you, the victim, even if you were driving safely and obeying all laws. And insurance companies will look for any excuse to shift the blame onto the other driver.
How much money can I win in an Atlanta car accident claim?
In Atlanta, if you were not the one who caused the accident, you are able to recover the FULL cost of all of the following:
- Current and future medical bills related to the accident
- Long-term care, rehabilitation or physical therapy
- Compensation for all wages or lost work time caused by the accident
- The cost of repairing all damages to your vehicle and other property, or replacing it if needed.
These are just the basic costs, in a situation where both drivers survived and are expected to make a full recovery. Many car accidents are more tragic than that. You could also be awarded substantially more by the courts in consideration of other losses:
- Funeral and burial costs for a loved one
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
- Severe changes in quality of life, such as a permanent disability
- Lost income from being unable to return to work, or losing the income of a loved one
What kind of injuries are covered by car accident claims?
All types of injuries are covered. If you have an injury, medical condition or source of pain that was caused or aggravated by the accident, it can be included in your settlement.
This can include:
- Whiplash, neck injuries and back injuries
- Broken bones, contusions and lacerations
- Concussions and brain injuries
- The loss of a limb
- Any temporary or permanent disability
- Chronic pain
If the car crash caused it, it’s covered.
What if the other driver doesn’t have insurance?
It doesn’t change who is liable.
Under Georgia law, all cars must be insured. If the car owner/driver does not have insurance, they become personally responsible for the cost of the accident. The same is true if they have an insurance policy that isn’t enough to cover all of your costs.
Of course, very few uninsured drivers have the resources to personally pay large medical bills. But we can use legal channels to seek other avenues of payment, including:
- Other insurance policies that may extend to the accident
- Placing a lien on the other driver’s property to ensure payment
Your costs should not go unpaid because of another driver’s poor decision. We can help.
The insurance company already offered me money. How can a lawyer help me?
Be careful. Insurance companies are quick to offer money just when you need it most. They are counting on your fear about rising medical costs to get you to sign the paperwork. But they know—and you may not—is that medical costs can become much higher than first expected. A treatment may not work, the diagnosis may have missed something, or there may be unexpected complications.
This could leave you with tens of thousands of dollars in additional medical bills after the insurance company has already “paid out.”
Do not fall for this trap. A lawyer can help you get the full amount you deserve:
- We get you to medical specialists who truly understand your condition
- We consider all future costs as well as current medical bills
- We launch an investigation and assemble hard evidence to MAKE the insurance company pay
